Description

This cheese is probably the most iconic Swiss cheese with its making tracing back to the twelfth century. Its characteristic holes (eyes) are created during the ripening when bacteria release carbon dioxide gas and in turn slowly forming the bubbles that make the holes. This process originates back to the introduction of a revolutionary heating system early 20th century.

The Sélection Beeler Emmental AOC Extra is produced in an old cheese dairy in the middle of the picturesque Emmental (Emme Valley) that has seen it all happen. The raw milk cheese is matured over 18 months, washed in salt brine for the first 12 months and then only in pure water to enhance its natural flavor of its pure, pre-alpine milk. It enjoys a mild aroma with a strong taste of nuts.

 

How we wrap your cheese

Freshness of your cheese is important to us. That’s why – unless noted differently in the description – we package all of our cheese in vacuum bags to help minimize travel impacts. However, we understand that some of you prefer cheese being wrapped in cheese wrap. This option is available to you for a small fee (it takes more time to package the cheese this way, that’s why we charge you a little bit more). Unless specifically noted in the description, all cheese will generally have a best before date of at least 14 days, vacuum packed cheese generally about 2 months. Please note that with cheese this is often only a guidance date and does not necessarily mean the cheese will be of lesser quality beyond that date. In fact many soft(er) cheeses are best kept close to or until after that date for maximum ripeness.

How the cheese gets to you
